"I'm an old-fashioned woman. Men should take care of women, and if men were taking care of women (today) we wouldn't have to vote. ... We have gotten the short end of the stick."

Kansas state Republican Sen Kay O'Connor, on why she opposed the 19th Amendment, from a 2001 interview with The Kansas City Star. O'Connor is now running for secretary of state of Kansas.

  1. Okay, this happens a lot... some politician says one thing and then years later says another; Kerry was a good example.

    So, at what point have these people had an epiphany and changed their views and at what point are they a hypocrite?

    Not that I'm defending this woman, I don't even know her, what party she's in, or why she stands for what she stands. But it sparked that little bit of interesting thought that made me wonder how people can be expected to hold to the ideals they once had even if the times have changed their positions.

    Okay, I'm just ranting. Sorry to clutter your comments.
